I've never taken my shaman very seriously so he's been sitting at Lv80 a while but I finally decided to play him and was quickly told that I need to do something about my Hit Rating. Well, I went out and bought the Hit Rating gems that I could afford and with everything (talents, Draenie racial and stats) added together I'm at 8.8%, if I'm not mistaken, out of the 17% hit cap. Or at 4.8% out of the 13% cap if you would like to look at it that way. I just don't understand where to go from here. I looked at WoW-Heroes "recommended enchantments" and it seemed none of them offered Hit Rating and the only better gems I could find costs 200 or more per gem and the gear I have will be replaced soon, I imagine so why should I spend that much to gem it?
If any one could explain to me where I'm going wrong (I'm well aware that I am), I'd appreciate it. Sorry for the trouble, I just don't understand this very well currently and it seems like everyone expects me to know.

Non-hit-related: change your meta to Chaotic Skyflare Diamond.
Keep in mind that the 17% is for raids. If you're doing heroics, you're fine. Start gathering a raid set that has more hit in it, so you can wear more crit/spellpower gear for doing 5-mans. Wyrmrest has a belt
with hit, H VH has a hit trinket
. Did you do that level 80 quest at Wyrmrest Temple
? You can get a hit trinket from that.
There's the hit rating enchant for gloves
which is cheap.
There's the boot enchant
, which is even cheaper.
With Heroic Presence, 3/3 Elemental Precision, plus 3% from IFF/Misery, you will need 10% spell hit from gear.
That's 263 hit rating. You have 126, so 137 is needed. hvh trinket is 73 hit rating all by itself. That plus the gloves enchant, plus the boot enchant = 105. If you got the trinket from the quest, that would put you over the cap, so you can change glove enchants, or regem, or start playing around. Plenty of easy hit to get out there, so figure out what way is best to get another 137 points.
I'm sure you're doing 5-man heroics to get emblems. Your Tier 9 set
has hit on it. Hands, Legs, and Chest have a lot of hit rating on them. The hands are just 30 triumph emblems. Do 5 or 6 random dungeons and there are the hands. Easy Peasy.

There's a great badge trinket
you can get.
Remember that for heroics, you need an absurdly low hit %. I think you only need 6%, so with talents+draenei racial, you're practically there.
It's raid bosses, level 83s, they're the ones you need 17% for. (With talents+racial+SPriest/Boomkin, it's 10% you need to get from gems/gear)
